Six Activities on the Chesapeake Bay

Six Activities on the Chesapeake Bay

Explore the Bay off of your waterfront home through these activity ideas!

The Chesapeake Bay is around 200 miles long, full of historical significance and teeming with life. Consisting of many rivers, waterways, and islands, the Bay has countless points of interest. If you are looking to live on Maryland’s waterfront, you can expect to have an inexhaustible list of family-fun activities at your fingertips. Below are just six activities on the Chesapeake Bay you can try for yourself this summer.

Annapolis Yacht Club

The Annapolis Yacht Club, located in downtown Annapolis and founded in 1886, sponsors numerous boating activities per year. Sailboat racing, rowboat racing, powerboat classes, sailing for youth, and cruising are just some of the activities on the water you can enjoy with them.

C&D Canal

The Chesapeake and Delaware Canal links the upper Chesapeake Bay near Chesapeake City, MD, to the Delaware River at Reedy Point, DE. This busy canal includes nearby sites such as the C&D Canal Trail and the C&D Canal Museum, which is temporarily closed at this time.

Calvert Cliffs State Park

Calvert Cliffs State Park, located in Lusby, MD, is truly a treasure-trove beach. With hundreds of fossils from the Miocene period, plenty of shells and sharks’ teeth to collect, and a lovely sandy beach, this park is a great place to while away the day in the water, on the beach, or on one of the hiking trails.

Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum

While St. Michaels is loaded with activity, one stop worth making there is the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. Here, you can see an extensive collection of Chesapeake maritime boats and objects, a working boatyard, a butterfly garden, a lighthouse, and more.

Delmarva Balloon Rides

Ever think you could enjoy a balloon ride so close to home? One can reach the heights of the Chesapeake sky from pre-sunrise to nighttime in Chester, MD. This family-run business offers educational, corporate, and special event services as well.

Historic St. Mary’s City

If there is any top historical site to visit in Maryland, it’s the Historic St. Mary’s City. Maryland’s first settlement, founded in 1634, is one of Maryland’s best-preserved historic sites and home to over 200 archeological digs in the past three decades.
